"two sides"

Monday, August 22, 2011

What have I been working on lately? Too much day-job work and not enough artworks, that's what. :(
However, I have finally managed to complete this piece of artwork a good friend of mine had sparked & inspired me to work on.

We were in Malacca checking out some really cool paintings of Buddha when he stated that he has seen many beautiful Buddha paintings, but they all look more or less the same. Wouldn't it be cool, he said, if there's one where half of Buddha's face is a skeleton? And bam! Inspiration. Of course, I jazzed it up a little with some really sick-lookin' Lady Gaga pointed studs.

For those of you who are jumping on that 'defacing-Buddha' bandwagon, don't even start. I am not defacing Buddha in any way nor am I conveying a negative (or satanic) message here. Buddha, being the higher being he is, is still human at the end of the day. And every one has a good & bad side to them, higher being or not. That's just how we are made, perfected by our imperfections.

This is, Buddha's Humanity.
